Leadership For the Africa We Want
Africa is one of the largest continent, having her tribes, languages and cultures under the umbrella of one race.
In her diversities, she is rich in glory, her uniqueness calls for exceptional leadership. To keep Africa growing, she ought to have a selfless based leadership with one mind that spreads its wings across all the race drawing all into peace, love and unity. Developing and helping one another, sharing in one’s pain, fight against hate and greed.
If these are achieved, bribery and corruption, terrorism, poverty, disease spread, inequality and injustice will be conquered. We will have 'Africa' that other continents will marvel at because all the bad eggs are removed from the land, leaving her tall and gallant.
Our color black is so unique that this has marked Africa differently from other world due to this beautiful feature in us, why won’t the 'Rule method' be thrown away by all leaders of the continent then embrace one system of leadership that is of perseverance and dedication targeted in making Africa one continent, one people and one nation.
Today the stories of our great leaders who are our heroes and heroines will never fade from our hearts as a result of their outstanding system of leadership exhibited by them as well as one common goal that existed among them; pursuit of progress and peace on the continent. In spite the challenges, they placed themselves at the forefront of developmental issues and prosperity in Africa. They left legacy for us to follow which is the leadership of open door, freedom not bondage.
Leadership that drives its strength from the golden law; "do to others what you want others to do to you positively" then there will be no killing, stealing, kidnapping, rape, robbery and violence in Africa. Leadership that carries all along on same path of goal achievement; to build up our Africa where all structures are effective. Imagined Health and electricity system of all African nations are at 100% stable, imagined unemployment rate is at 0% in all the nations, the world will be jealous of Africa.
A purpose driven leadership with its own anthem of telling all the people of Africa that the rest of the worlds are on a racing battle Africa have to keep running never to be at the bottom but at the top. Therefore, it doesn’t matter if I am from Nigeria, he is from Ghana, she is from South Africa or they are from Kenya what matters is coming together under a purposeful leadership and make Africa bright as her name implies, it not a crime if Africa stands as the number one in the world list as the most developed and strong continent.
As blessed continent, her leadership should be like the tree where stem balanced on the root, the branch balanced on the stem, the leaves balanced on the branch, all holding each other strong making it one tree that produces one fruit. Let hold our hands, set our pattern of leadership in one direction and make the 'Africa We Want’. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf(Liberian), Kenneth Kaunda(Zambian), Jomo Kenyatta(Kenya), Thomas Sankara(Burkina Faso), Kofi Annan(Ghana), Patrice Lumumba(Congo), Julius Nyerere(Tanzania), Kwame Nkrumah( Ghana), Haile Selassie(Ethiopia), Nelson Mandele( South Africa) and many more, all did it. They made Africa great in which we are enjoying that benefits today, this is as a result of their selfless leadership carried out. We can also do it for the Africa we want!
Today a new slavery has creeped in to dwell in us. We are no more free because poverty has become our slave master. Let our leaders wake up from their ‘greed sleep' break off that chain and make Africa a freedom land.
Africa is one continent, one people and one nation (Nkrumah 1909-1972).
